We all have buttons that, when pushed, can stop us from thinking clearly and can polarize dialogues making them useless, if not destructive. On Triangulations I discuss highly polarizing topics: religion, philosophy, politics, lifestyles and more. On most my posts I try to relate those topics to habits of our minds. But on many posts, buttons get pushed, the points I intend to make are often lost and threads get side-tracked. Of course, some of that is simply due to my bad writing or bad ideas. 🙂
Anyway, I thought I’d experiment with some posts on Mathematics with an emphasis on how our “Religious Mind” relates to Mathematics (“Math” in American English, “Maths” in British English — don’t want to push buttons right from the start!).
Hopefully there will not be too many readers who are emotionally attached to theories of math or to numerology. So discussing Math may be a fun way to approach the same issues of Mind using a more neutral subject.
